Week 4 – Preparation with PERMS


Developing Debating Skills (all ages)

When preparing for a debate, PERMS is a useful tool to help us come up with lots of different arguments.

To recap, PERMS stands for:
Political
Economical
Religious/Race
Moral
Social

We can use these categories to help us think of arguments when we are given a motion. Have a look at the Motion Sheet below and have a go at coming up with arguments for the motions!

Challenge: Try writing some PEEL speeches for your best arguments.
